I did not defraud Nigerians, transgender Jayboogie speaks out amid BBL fraud


Popular Nigerian transgender, Daniel Nsikan, popularly known as Jay Boogie, has debunked claims that he scammed Nigerians amidst BBL fraud.

Earlier this month, the popular transgender claimed that both of his kidneys were failing as a result of a botched BBL operation, a claim that was criticised by Doctor Loveth and influencer Tosin Silverdam.

Jayboogie denied lying about his physical condition in a conversation with blogger Egungun, claiming that he did not deceive Nigerians as has been suggested.

He said, “Let me kneel and apologise. Nigerians, I’m sorry. I never scammed or defrauded Nigerians; it was all fake news. I can’t go around in circles. I just wanted to get well and come out and clear my name, and I’m sorry if anyone felt that way; I’m not that kind of person.

“I already posted what happened and even sought help, and people reached out. Doctor Loveth and one other lady reached out. I stopped things with the GoFundMe because I noticed something fishy.

“People who came to see me at the hospital just came for pictures. It was during that period that fake news about a botched BBL surgery started trending.

“I was eventually chased out of the hospital as the hospital was also trying to protect its name. I am better now but will continue to seek treatment.

“If not for you Nigerians I won’t be alive today. Thank you so much for the donations and may the good Lord bless you.”
